Presentation Abstract

While the world has been fascinated by holographic and light field technology, Looking Glass Factory is the first company to ship consumer-ready, multi-viewer light field displays. Looking Glass displays have been garnering attention since they first launched back in 2018. More recently, the personal holographic display, Looking Glass Portrait, received ~10,000 orders via a crowdfunding effort. With this talk, Looking Glass Factory CEO, Shawn Frayne, will dive into the technology and provide an inside view of how the displays work and what makes them different, from capture to processing to display.
